Congratulations, Marc. I love this shot, as I do most of your work. This deserves first place IMVHO. This touches me in ways the current Landscape Category winner can never do.

Lisa C. Harness 8/30/2005 6:30:28 AM

Marc, congratulations on your contest win and POTD. This is a stunning image - it draws your attention right into the light. How exciting it must have been to see this scene in person.

The Jefferson wilderness area / Central Oregon is a beautiful place. Our family spent many (20+) years camping in the more remote parts of the Metolius / Jack Creek / Abbot Creek / Lake Creek / Canyon Creek areas. I haven't had the courage to go back yet since the devastating fires in 2003.

Ah, but I digress - my apologies. This is what photographs should do - evoke a mood, stir up memories.

Again, congratulations, Marc. What a fantastic image!
